Hi guys,

Wonderfull database.

I've downloaded the dump and now I want the wikipedia page for a record in a database. How do I link the database entree to a wikipedia page?

You have the wikipedia link in the alternateNames table. You have to look for iso_language = link and geonameid = the place from where you want the link

Im sorry, I do not understand what you mean by iso_language = link. What is iso_language ?

I have both the geonames table and alternatenames table imported in postgres
